 This school will be devoted, to a large extent, to questions in several complex variables. Questions arising from analysis as well as complex geometry will be studied, but the focus will be on geometric methods that have been relevant to these questions. Some topics in complex dynamics where these methods have been useful will also be covered. A large part of of the lectures will be devoted to the Bergman metric; the Carath´ odorye and Kobayashi pseudometrics; and what the properties of these objects reveal about the domains/manifolds on which they are defined. The first week will be devoted   to basic notions in several complex variables that will be needed to study the above topics.

How to reach

How to reach IISc from the Airport/Railway station /Majestic?

Bangalore is connected by air, rail and road to all the metropolises and most major cities of the country. Also, one can fly direct to Bangalore from several international airports

IISc is about 35kms from the airport. One could take either a prepaid taxi (currently, costs Rs. 750, and the counter is available near the exit of the Airport Building), or a city taxi (costs about Rs. 700, and a queue for the same is just outside the airport building). The Institute is known as "Tata Institute" to the locals and is just past Mekhri circle and on the way to Yeshwantpura (one must take a right turn at Mekhri circle). Shuttle bus service, operated by Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC), runs from the airport to various areas in Bangalore city every 15 minutes. Details of the schedule can be found here. Additional information on the airport can also be found at its official website: (

The city railway station is about 7 kms from IISc campus. One will have to get out of the station from platform number ONE and reach the prepaid taxi stand and hire a city taxi (costs about Rs 150). Majestic  (7kms from IISc) is the central Bus stand in Bangalore which is just opposite to the City Railway station. If one happens to reach Majestic, Bangalore by bus, reach platform number 22 from where almost all buses come to the Institute.

The Yeshwantpura railway station is located at less than 2 km from the institute campus. One can take a 'pre-paid' auto from the counter located outside the exit gate of platform number 6. The prepaid autos shouldn't charge more than Rs. 80 (as of Sep 2013), and is the best deal given the options available. The landmark is CNR Rao Circle from where one would take the entry to IISc. Though the prepaid contract says IISc (Tata Institute as more popularly known) gate as the destination, the hostels and most of the academic departments are within 500 mts from the gate, and hence the auto can be requested to drop at your destination.

If one plans to take a bus into town, one will have to move past Malleswaram 18th cross bus stand  towards Yeshwantpura  in order to reach IISc (also popularly called Tata Institute). There is also a bus stop on the highway between the yellow over bridge and Prof. CNR Rao circle, and another one at Prof. CNR Rao circle (on Sir CV Raman Road ). Finally there is a bus stop at Yeshwantpura tollgate, just off campus near R block. Most buses go to one of these places.
